“Very dissappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2011

We have been coming to Maine for 8 summers and have been looking for moose all that time. We finally decided to go on a moose safari to MAKE SURE we could see a moose. We paid $200 and drove 2 hours and 45 minutes to get to this outfitter. After an hour drive to the pond and paddling for two hours, we saw no moose. What a huge dissappointment for our family as there was such a build up on our drive to see moose. I wish this outfitter had let us know that there was a possiblity that we would see no moose. At the very least, a portion of the fee should have been returned to us.

We went on a guided moose safari with our great guide Eric. He is an excellent guide!! We saw one male and seven females on our canoe adventure. Very exciting and so fun!

“Just try ATV'ing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2010

I'll say at the outset, we are not the ATV'ing type! What an un-expected adventure we had doing this for a few hours. Jim provided excellent instruction with an emphasis on safety. We completed the 'Loop trail' and made a few stops along the way per his recommendations.
FYI--you will need to stop by the store downtown to complete the paperwork and get equipment. You park and pick up the ATV at the motel they run just 2-3 miles away.

“Amazing Vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2010

My husband and I recently celebrated our 25th anniversary with the "Ultimate Adventure" package from Northwoods Outfitters. The outings we chose were the bass fishing, salmon fishing, and sunset cruise. This was by far the best vacation we have taken in those 25 years. All of the staff at the "store" (outfitter home base, store, internet cafe, coffee shop) were very friendly and helpful. The Maine Guides that we were with (Mike, Chris, and Ashley) we all very personable and really knew the area. The hotel (Moose Mouontain Inn) is very basic, but met all our needs, very clean, handmade quilt on the bed, quiet setting, and the staff there was great as well. We plan to return for our next vacation.

The rest of the town is nice also. Good, reasonably priced restaurants. Great scenery. And the local townspeople are friendly. All in all a wonderful experience.

“Magical experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2010

We have now had two moose safaris with Northwoods Outfitters, both with Ashley. They have been wonderful, magical experiences. She knows so much about the wildlife and the woods and makes the expeditions fascinating from start to finish. Her energy is boundless and she really knows her subjects. We had some wonderful moose and other wildlife sightings all in a perfect setting on a secluded pond.
These trips are worth travelling a long way for, so if you are asked to get up very early in the morning, please do so, it will reward you many times over!
